Halloween cakes and biscuits! Spooky stuff finally on the shelves!

You know it's getting that time of year when you're in the supermarket and go down the aisle for bread and cakes and discover it has adopted a strange fluorescent orange tint.  In actuality, there wasn't that much Halloween stuff in the whole store.

Kenner Lava Predator action figure from 1994!

It was Christmas '95 or '96 and I was tearing the paper off a present from my great grandmother. Somewhat surprisingly I wasn't overly enthusiastic when I pulled the last bit of wrapping away and I was holding this.   Obviously with hindsight I can see that I was a fucking idiot. If I could …

Attic finds! My Little Pony toys and Littlefoot hand puppet!

A little while ago my girlfriend went up into the attic to have a rummage around for some documents. She came back down with a bag full of toys which was exciting and unexpected and it made me make a mental note to check my parents attic when I am next in England visiting them, …

Jakks Pacific World of Nintendo Action Figures! Plus Sonic the Hedgehog 20th Anniversary figure!

Mighty Max Escapes from Skull Dungeon playset!

After starting to plan for my Halloween countdown that I am doing this year, I got my Mighty Max toys out again. Every time I get 'em out, I realise that being a grown man, how far from being an adult I really I am. I sat for entirely too long playing with Mighty Max …

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Wacky Action Rock ‘N Roll Michaelangelo action figure!

I loved and still love Ninja Turtles. It is such a weird combination, get some turtles, make 'em mutated ones that are roughly the size of humans and who can talk. And make 'em ninjas as well. What part of that isn't the best thing ever? I had quite a few Turtles toys as a …

Video Game Retrospectives! The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX, Gameboy Color 1998

Due to a variety of reasons (most of them boring) it has been a while since I last did a blog post. So I am going to do my best to rectify that now. I am guessing  it would have been around 1999 and I had gone over to a friends house (we had been …
